Earl of Anxi Blend from Verdant Tea

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Oolong Where to Buy:  Verdant Tea Tea Description: Traditional Earl Grey is a classic, great for every season. With the Earl of Anxi, we start not with a black tea, but with our Master Zhang’s Hand-Picked Tieguanyin to give the bergamot a sweet, bright base and reinforce the floral citrus notes. We draw out the citrus sweetness with a uniquely creamy and rich orange peel, and crystallize the florals into a prominent position with jasmine blossoms. Learn more about this tea here. Taster’s Review: This is really a unique take on Earl Grey – unique but very enjoyable! Read More
